Marijuana has no addictive chemicals or components. It *CAN* be habit-forming for a small number of people who use it, but it is not the same thing as an addiction. And the number is tiny. Billions of people smoke marijuana, and they have all throughout history, and not a single person has ever died from it. (It would take an impossible amount of marijuana to overdose on it, and a sealed room, and you'd suffocate before you OD-ed.) Marijuana has way more benefits than it does dangers, and it's been proven to help many, many disease, including chronic pain, glaucoma, nausea, eating disorders, depression, sleep disorders, anxiety, and it aids cancer patients and the sufferers of chronic diseases. It also *CAN* have negative effects on teens, but those are rare and not life-threatening. It is not a dangerous drug, just one that needs to no longer be illegal so it can be openly studied and utilized, because it has the potential to change so much.

Not that I'm saying drugs are good or I support it, but the first fact is technically wrong. Marijuana has no addictive factor in its ingredients. The addictive part of it is all in the person's brain. That's why most people use it.
Of course, it CAN still kill brain cells and it is scientifically proven that it makes you dumber, so it's still a pretty bad drug. :\

I got 70% of the questions correct on the quiz, and 80% correct in the Braniac Round. I guessed on a couple of them. (:

Thanks a lot for posting this, GL! Drug use is an extremely widespread and important issue. The more websites that post serious articles like this, the more teens that might listen and realize that drug use is not worth the consequences it causes, especially for teens. Why ruin your life when you have so much more to live for?
